New Yorkers who have been personally impacted by climate change are coming to Albany to share their stories.
The residents are just a few of the individuals expected to attend a meeting Monday by a climate change panel led by Democratic state Sen. Brad Hoylman of Manhattan.
The group includes scientists, policy experts and legal scholars studying the state's response to climate change.
Among other topics, the panel is expected to review the state's progress in curbing carbon emissions and discuss other steps the state can take to mitigate or adapt to climate change.
The panel meets Monday morning in the Legislative Office Building.
